The third section of the High Line, from 30th to 34th Streets, will be closed to park visitors from Tuesday, February 9, to Tuesday, February 23, due to an ongoing construction project. The High Line between 30th and Gansevoort Streets will remain accessible to visitors during this time.

PHOTOS: High Line Book Release Party


October 18 marked the anticipated official release of High Line: The Inside Story of New York City’s Park in the Sky, which tells the over decade of work that went into transforming the first two sections of the High Line from once-abandoned elevated railway into the innovative public park it is today.

On the evening of the release, we invited members and supporters to toast the new book with a harvest-themed cocktail party hosted by Coach. Co-founders Joshua David and Robert Hammond gathered with guests to enjoy delicious seasonal appetizers, spiced cider, and fall cocktails by bite.

SEE PHOTOS from the event on October 18.

If you weren’t able to join us, High Line: The Inside Story of New York City’s Park in the Sky is available in our Web Shop. When you purchase your book directly from Friends of the High Line, 100% of the proceeds go to supporting the ongoing maintenance and operations of the park.

Coach is also giving you another chance to pick up the book and have it signed by Josh and Robert on Thursday, November 30 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM, at their Madison Avenue store. Coach will donate a portion of proceeds from store sales during the event hours to Friends of the High Line.
